    Question Looking for a specific watch for my husband

    Hello! I've looked everywhere and I can't seem to find a particular watch.

    It's made by Molnija and portrays an image of the "Meeting at the Elbe River"


    My husband used to have this watch, but it was stolen. It was a gift from his late uncle and I would love to find one to buy for him. The only luck I have had is a past auction on eBay. Any help would be great!

    I couldn't find the specific Molnija you are looking for but I would bet you can find one if you spend the time looking. I don't mean just one time searching but look for the next six months. Contact dealers and ask for help like you did here. Good luck

    I have been looking and will keep up the search. I've been looking since October and was so bummed that I barely missed the auction for it. I've called a few places, but we live in a pretty remote area and sent out a few emails. When I found this forum, I thought someone might have seen one and give me a better direction in where to look. There seems to be less info now than there was 3 months ago. Thanks for the advice!

    That's a pretty specific watch indeed.
    Have you checked the russian watch forum: Russian watches ?
    Maybe some of the guys there could point you in the right direction.
    Good luck.

    A suggestion would be to offer to buy the one you saw, contact the seller and see if they would contact the buyer on your behalf, with your story the new owner may just sell it to you. It has only been a month so the seller should still be able to find the buyers info.

    You might also try running both the text and image through Google to see if any other information exists about it.
